The Edwards Accelerator Laboratory is managed by the
Department of Physics and Astronomy
which resides in the College of
Arts & Sciences at
The lab is also a part of the Institute for Nuclear and
Particle Physics at Ohio University.
The laboratory is member of
ARUNA, which promotes research
at university-based accelerators in the U.S.
We are also an Associated Institution with the
Joint Institute for Nuclear Astrophysics
which seeks to foster interdisciplinary collaborations in nuclear physics
Much of the funding that supports research in the laboratory comes from
the U.S. Department of Energy, via
the Office of Science,
the National Nuclear
the Office of Nuclear Energy,
and Lawrence Livermore
Funding for the 2011-12 Pelletron upgrade was received from the
National Science Foundation; this
agency has also supported basic research in the laboratory in the past.
The Defense Threat Reduction Agency
supports some of our work in applied nuclear physics.
